A number of Yukon and Canadian County residents made it to the Trump rally in Tulsa Saturday night. Cran and Kristi Pollock, a Yukon native, attended inside the downtown BOK Center after waiting all day.
Kristi Pollock, a 1997 Yukon High School graduate, whose children attend Yukon Schools today, was in the crowd and took a number of photographs of President Trump.
“I had never in my life seen a president and that was very important to me first off. What an honor to be in the same room as one,” Pollock said.
She said she made it to the line outside the BOK Center at 6 a.m. Saturday. During the day, it was not certain who would get in. But the couple made it through all the screening and sat in seats close to the floor.
“We got to talk to many people. I was really amazed at, and so surprised at the diversity of the audience. People were there from all walks of life and all the states. My husband has been a huge Trump fan since day one.”
She said she talked to other Yukon residents at the rally. She said she has become more of a Trump supporter recently.
“I have found the conviction to stand up for something and that is one of the reasons I had decided to go. Our day was very long,’ Pollock said.
She said medical staff members checked body temperatures of people who attended.
She said she left the downtown area to get back to the hotel about 10:30 p.m. She said she did not see any protesters.
She said there was a lot of excitement, but everyone was peaceful. She said people applauded Oklahoma National Guard members and law enforcement officers on the scene.
Canadian County Commissioner Marc Hader, District 1, and his wife State Rep. Denise Crosswhite Hader, District 41, were also in the audience at the rally and volunteered.
